In one of the rooms, vendors parked boutiques displaying their crafts from clothing to jewelry. Down the hall from the entrance was the comedy room where festival-goers could see sets by new comedians or the headliner, Shaunak Godkhindi, who had a killer set.
Across from the comedy room, an ominous doorway lured visitors into dancing, where colored lights and vibrating sound waves greeted you with impunity. A three person band delivered a one-of-a-kind experience featuring an electric sitarist, bassist, hand-pan player and a DJ.
Once I broke the sitar’s enchanting hypnosis, I explored more of this eclectic festival. More vendors lined the back hallway leading to the main stage, offering everything from tarot card readings to CBD gummies.
The main stage was something out of a weird dream after a night in Little 5 Points. It was completely decorated with pillars, vines, neon lights and polka dot painted trees. Bands like Big Brutus, Partials and headliner Pure Colors all played sets to an energetic, lively crowd. Vendors selling food provided festival-goers with vegan options, and a minibar stocked with plenty of water and beer for the night.
